Just couldn't resist taking some photos of the incredible autumn flowers blooming in my garden at the moment. The apple in the photo is to show how big they are.
These Dahlias were only planted in the past year so I'm quite chuffed they have done so well, even though it was quite a difficult summer.
They survived a very dry December followed by storms and the edge of a small tornado which hit our region some weeks back. Luckily we just caught the edge of it but our neighbours down the lane lost about six huge trees.
Dahlias make for wonderfully colourful flower arrangements and the vivid colours brighten up any room. I bought these Dahlia bulbs online from Garden Express and can recommend them!
